Using the E-Books

We have a number of electronic books (e-books) that you are welcome to use.  There are a few things to remember:

  1. You have to have an account in the library to access the link.  Anyone with a OPSU identification card will have an account automatically.  Anyone else will have to register with the library in person.
  2. Books can be in either HTML, PDF, or an automatic viewing format.  Look at the page thoroughly.
  3. Sometimes the book will have a limit on the number of users who can access the book at once.  If you can't get in, try again later.

Requesting Material the Library Doesn't Own

You have two options if the library doesn't have what you need:

  1. request the material using Interlibrary Loan
  2. request that the library buys what you need

Interlibrary loan requests are made library (borrowing) to library (lending).  If the lending library has what is request, they will send it if they can.  If they can't fill the request, it is then forwarded to another library that should have the material.  Sometimes the process is very quick; other times it could take several weeks.  If you decide to go this route, get your request in early.  The night before your paper is due is not enough time.

You can also request that the library buys the material.  The director of the library looks at all the requests and determines if the library can buy.  Timing and budget constraints are factors in this process.  Not all requests are approved.
